Whistle Stop Tour 

GET ON BOARD  

CSI's Whistle Stop Tour is a series of virtual events and conversations in communities across the PNW.

 

We will visit  towns where we’re seeing some of the most exciting projects take root that show how we can leverage infrastructure to help create a thriving and more sustainable future during this time of unprecedented change. 

At each Whistlestop Station, we'll visit many of the places we've been working with through our Innovation Lab. On the tour you’ll meet some of the terrific PNW innovators who’ve been working with the CSI Innovation Lab, and we’ll introduce you to thought leaders discussing the biggest questions impacting infrastructure policy and investment during this time of unprecedented change. 

PIVOTING TO SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE IS KEY TO BUILDING A THRIVING PNW FUTURE

 

Quality infrastructure matters to every community, in every part of the Pacific Northwest. Community infrastructure is the lifeblood of our local economies and shapes much of our daily lives – providing us with clean water and air, effective transportation and communication, heat and power for home, work and industry, and more. We spend billions of dollars every year to operate, maintain, rebuild and expand these essential systems.

 

It's time we better leverage these investments. 

 

Our powerful proposition: Pivoting to sustainable infrastructure is one of the biggest levers we
have to tackle our toughest challenges – from climate change to inequitable prosperity to crippling cultural divisions – and together build a thriving future for our communities.
